The crash is located southwest of the intersection of Lowell Boulevard and East Baseline Road.
Images from Copter4 suggest the craft impacted Anthem Ranch Road and came to rest at the base of a spruce tree and the engine separated from the rest of the fuselage.
One person was killed in another single-engine plane crash in Broomfield less than two weeks ago. Plus, Broomfield residents were among those showered with debris when an airliner suffered a violent engine failure in February 2021.
